 August 4, 2013, 04:03 Additional Variable #1 New Member   Ding Chao Join Date: Aug 2013 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 5 Hi everyone. I am modeling a gas-water free surface flow useing CFX-14. I have created a additional variable and the source exist in the water phase. The additional variable should only exist in the water phase,but finally I found it spread into the air phase, and this is not what I want. How can I solve this problem?If anyone know the answer,please help me.I will be very grateful to you

Physically, why doesn't it spread to the air phase? Wouldn't a diffusivity (assuming it is a diffusive AV, I am just guessing here) which has a value in the liquid but is zero (or close to it, like 1e-20) in air do the trick?

The type of additional variable is specific scalar and when the air.vf>0.5,the source will be 0. The transport type in water phase is Transport Equation,and in air phase,the transport equation is off.
The additional variable can be seen as a kind of chemical substances,and it can only exist in liquid phase.
